I have a overwintered nuc (with a locally mated, homegrown Queen) that is incredible. It made it through the winter in 2, 5 frame nuc bodies. It was transfered into a deep in March and I gave it a 2nd deep the first week of April. I can not believe how much brood is in this hive. There are at least 7 Full frames of brood. I put 3 drawn supers on 2 weeks ago. I decided after an inspection today (no swarm or supercedure cells) to give them a 3rd deep with drawn comb and new foundation. I do not want his hive to swarm and this will be my first 3 deep hive. Wish me luck. Pictures below.

That is one hell of queen you have there.

That boys and girls is what we call a very nice brood frame.

That x 7 frames, both sides = happy beekeeper!
I just hope that 3rd deep keeps them from swarming, before I get me some honey.

A few questions for you please. The pattern is excellent, particularly side to side. Do you use screened bottom boards? slatted racks? vented tops? type of foundation? Just curius is all...

Thaks for the comments and questions.
Konasdad, I use screened bottom boards and Duragilt.
Shizzell, I know! Thats why as soon as i saw all that brood, I threw another deep body on.
I want a strong hive, this is my first 3 deep hive. I have 3 supers on also with drawn comb.
